Default Correct 65 L76 Convertible

Looking for a correct blue/blue, blue/white, or silver/silver 65 convertible. Would like L76 but would also consider high option L79. Serious private party looking for a nice original car to hold and keep for many years. Will offer fair price....

Thanks for your help! Looks like a great silver car with AC. One question, I thought I read that 65 365 cars were not made with power steering due to the larger oil pan on the 365. Do you know if that is correct?

Best, Chuck546

First off, this car does not have factory AC, it has vintage Air with an original style compressor and center AC vent. next, no 365hp cas did not get power steering, next, says car is correct, but nothing about matching numbers or original.

I also see a 66 hood and emblem, repop teak, incorrect dash rivets, wrong master cylinder, incorrect pulleys and fan, 66-67 grill, does not add up to a no expense spared 89k car.

Thanks for your very detailed response. I noticed the AC and master cylinder but not series of other issues you call out. Great eye!!!!

A few questions for the buyer. Is original matching number a requirement? Does the car need to be an original silver or blue car with matching original trim tag? Where are you located? Are you willing to travel for the right car? Price range?

Thanks for your note. Yes, I am looking for a full drivetrain numbers matching correct car in its original colors. I am in the Midwest and I am willing to travel nation-wide for the right car. I understand pricing and can offer a very fair price to a private seller who has a nice car.

Does the car have to have the same color interior and exterior? Like silver/silver and blue/blue. Sometimes contrasting colors look pretty good as well. It will also give you a larger selection to choose from.

Thanks. I agree, contrasting can be very nice: Black/white, Black/silver, Blue/white, and Silver/red is also very nice. My first vette, 30 years ago, was a C3 white/red leather car. I am trying to stay from a black interior on a car with no air....
